coalition says marijuana use is five and ten thousand dollars before 2000 -- to more than one-*hundred- thousand by 2012. tonight, in a story you will see only on cbs 2 news, i show you some of the reasons for the sharp climb in cost, cost,a resource for help and a very resilient retiree -- "it's just like somebody gave you a good kick in the gut because it just knocks the wind right out of you."lavon hyberger vividly remembers the day in 1985 when she first learned she had breast cancer. not willing to take chances, lavon immediately had a modified radical mastecomy followed by radiation and hormone treatments. lavon beat the cancer, or so she thought. fifteen years later, it returned with a vengence not only in her other breast but her lungs and bone. she's been on various drug therapies
now is taking ibrance. "the cost of this one is pretty similar to the other one which was like, $10,500 which would be my out of pocket expense fora&a three week supply." that breaks down to 500-dollars per pill. in addition, lavon gets monthly injections of faslodex at roughly 5-thousand dollars a pop. but, if not for this therapya& "i don't know that lavon would still be with us. it's pill. she also gets injections at $5,000 a pop. >> but without the therapy, she may not be with us. to 120-thousand dollars. she says one reason for the annual cost of drugs used for cancer treatments. she says one reason for the prices is there isn't as much competition for these drugs.
pills so they all have to compete against each other on price because you'll only need one or two. even though there are several drugs that can be used for a certain type of cancer, eventually you'll need every single one of those drugs so there's not market competition to drive the prices down. >> the pharmaceutical companies say they need to charge high prices to recoupe costs. >> they're testing the limits of how far they can push drug "the lobbyists were able to get that though on behalf of the pharmaceutical companies. and frankly, because of that, people who are setting the prices for these drugs for
companies, the drug distributors."dr. wilbur also says the drug companies have become experts in extending their patents to keep drugs from going to cheaper, generic versions. "so when the drug is supposed to be coming off patent, they'll tweak a formulation, they'll tweak an indication and they'll be able to prolong patents to keep drugs from going to generic forms. >> they can prolong the time financial advocate at mercy medical center. it's young's job to find co-pay assistance for patients like hyberger. and her biggest resource-- foundations, funded soley or in part by the pharmaceutical companies. "we would not be able to help as many patients as we do without the help of the pharmaceutical companies." companies." "they're coming directly through the drug manufacturers themselves or through foundations which are getting a lot of their money from the drug companies. and i understand the pitfalls of that but i also understand that we have to do what we have to do to get help for these patients right now and
this point, then that's what we'll do to get help for these patients." patients." "knock on wood, i don't have to pay anything which is a blessing." hyberger says she knows the drug companies have an awful lot of control and it's frustrating. but facing what she's facing, this 72-year old grandmother companies have a lot of control, and it's frustrating. but she remains grateful. >> if we didn't have the assistance to help with this, i probably wouldn't be here talking to you today. >> both mercy and ui says they can usually help most patients with financial assistance, but there are those who don't qualify or fall through the cracks. the mes effective way to encourage change is through grass roots advocacy. there's a link at cbs2iowa.com.

(cheers and applause) >> stephen: thank you so much! thanks, everybody. before we get started. i'd like to say a few words about the passing of supreme court justice antonin scalia. he was universrsly acknowledged to be an intellectual giant, who left his mark not only on the court but on our approach to the constitution. and whether or not you agreed with him or made a lot of jokes about him like i did, he had a sense of humor. people have actually broken down the transcripts of oral
jokes and got more laughs than of any of the justices. that might part of the reason why he was such good friends with justices who he disagreed with like ruth bader ginsburg and elena kagan. and i s lucky enough to have one conversation with him that explained his appeal to me. it was ten years ago this april, when i spoke at the white house correspondents dinner. i don't know if you guys saww that. (chf not a lot of people laughed in the front row. (laughter) some people laughed in the back of the room but e important people in the front row, mostly silent when i gave the speech. when it was over, no one was
the one exception was antonin scalia. he had been caught a week earlier doing this to the photographers. i did my gestures at him. after it was over, he came up to me, again, no one is talking to me in the whole damn room! and antonin scalia comes up to me and says, it's great, great! did you give me e of these? ahhh! i said, sir, first, i want to ask, would that be legal for me to do? he said, of course, it would be legal. i said, yeah, i gave you one of these. he said, great stuff! great stuff! good night. and he ft. i watched him go and i thought, don't you make me love you, old man. so i will forever be grateful for that moment of human contact that he gave me.
time, justice scalia, i salute you. (cheers and applause) (cheers and applause) while i'm guessing i'm not on the short list to be named to the supreme court, as a late-night host, i already wield tremendous power. i can force 200 people to wait in line in the snow for two hours and they still clap when they see me! (chehes and applause) that's not right! and yet... and yet, there are those out there even more powerful than i am powerful. history's most despotic leaders - people like genghis khan, czar nicholas the second and jessica alba, who i believe is the ruler of albania.

one is a big furry hat! (drumming) (cheers and applause) now that this hat is upon my head, i am endowed with unquestionable power! this is due to my hat's two main attributes: its bigness, and its furriness. any proclamations i make while so behatted are now and foreverr law. let us begin. drumming a march rhythm).
